  1. On my car the up and down buttons ( under the volume buttons ) on the steering wheel scan the band. Is there a way to change that so instead of scanning, it would change to the next preset station? Seems kind of pointless having steering wheel controls to keep your hands on the wheel, but they don't do the most common operations.

  2. Don't wish, just do it. Get a pair of mirrors from the wreckers yard from a Jap legacy, the switch panel by your knee, and the car-end plugs where the mirror plugs into the loom.
  3. Finished wiring up the JDM-spec electric folding and heated mirrors that I've put on my Gen 4 facelift Legacy.
  4. Has anyone removed the throttle body on an H6 engine to clean it properly, rather than just cleaniing what you can with it on the car ( basically only one side of it ). Is it a big job / worth the effort?
  5. Has anyone removed the throttle body ( on an H6 engine ) to clean it properly, rather than just doing what you can with it on the car?
  6. Araldite fixed the crack. 20200818_174210 by JAFA851, on Flickr This is the throttle body. Does it look like it needs cleaning? With a squirty can of snake oil from Supercrap? 20200818_182344 by JAFA851, on Flickr
  7. So I finally found the time ( and a spare car to use ) last night so I pulled the air chamber off the car and put some Araldite in the crevice where the crack is. Should be able to put it back on the car tonight. The pipe that goes between the air filter and the chamber, the locating tab wasn't really lined up the best so I'll make sure that is right when I put it back together. Everything else looks ok in terms of nothing seems loose or wiring damaged etc. I haven't cleaned the throttle body, and not sure what condition it's in, might have a look tonight before I put the intake chamber back on.
  8. OK so I went out tonight after tea and logged it again, and added and deleted the parameters accordingly. There is no parameters for FBKC, gear ( my car is 5 speed auto ), fuel tank pressure, or EGR steps. I found and added the CPC, and added 2 other ones I thought may be useful ( the last 2 in columns Y and Z )? I cruised along the surburban roads to the motorway, the first on ramp was wasted because of sleepyhead in front, so I did 3 more on-ramps and gave it a good rev out to 6000rpm ( been a very long time since it's been anywhere near that high!! ), then off the motorway and cruise back home. So hopefully there is some good data there which can tell us something. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lXS34SoL9a_1-nQw9aQnqMP-QGeJEQYK/view?usp=sharing The thing I've noticed when I had the Nexus in the car and could see the IAM live, when it's sitting at whatever number, any time I drove the car any harder than absolute grandma, even if I drive the car just totally normally ( not giving it any beans but not taking all day either ), the IAM always took a massive dive instantly. As you can see on tonight's log, the IAM is at 0.000. What happens if it wants to take even more timing out? Can it go negative? Or does it just display 0.000 and then keep taking timing out anyway if it wants to?
  9. I was looking for the FBKC but couldn't see it, maybe I need to look harder. I'll try to do another run tonight and get rid of the parameters not needed and try to find the other ones you have suggested. Thanks for your continuing help and advice
  10. Went for a drive this afternoon and logged the parameters you said ( hope I got them all ). https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Tp6dKQKqofP49Tc_COpUk2rCWzXBdbi6/view?usp=sharing
  11. Oh ok so I should log it with RomRaider like before when we did the AVCS solenoid? I will try to do that on the weekend. Won't have the intake crack fixed by them though.
  12. I couldn't find Feedback Knock Correction or Fine Knock Correction on the BtSsm. Is the FKC value Feedback Knock COrrection? What is FLKC? Anyway, does this below tell you anything?

  13. I think the BtSsm is reading the IAM correctly, as there is always a long list of knock events on the tab next to the "LV" at the top right of the screen. I might get some of those off and post up so you can see. It doesn't look right to me, as they are quite often as low revs or low load yet it reckons it is pinging it's head off. As far as I can tell and hear, there are not rattles of loose things, either at idle with the bonnet up, or driving along with the window down trying to hear anything. So I really don't know. @ajayel do you know if the 3.6 litre motors have these problems?
  14. Latest log. Been a few weeks since I put in the new solenoid and reset the ECU. About the only thing I've noticed is it seems to start a little quicker when cold, otherwise it's still got about as much go as a 3 legged donkey with a limp.... BtSsm_LV_20200612_1515 by JAFA851, on Flickr Just checked the airbox at the back of the engine, and there is a small crack in it. What's best to fix that with, some epoxy smoothed over the joint? 20200614_111457 by JAFA851, on Flickr
